Offine Child Session
hello, could someone help me with the problem below?
Everything works fine in the main session, but when executing the child session it appears offiline as you can see in the print.
I appreciate the help.

So child sessions is not the SAME desktop as your main desktop, but a separate one. There for the robot in the child cannot connect to the chrome addon if chrome is running on your main session (and vice versa ) and yet, some applications have issues running, since they are locking the same files, so with chrome you need to start a new chrome inside the child session using a separate profile if you want to use chrome in both sessions.
I can swap profiles clicking here
or just close chrome if it is running on your main desktop.

This was a little confusing, and not very user friendly.
So I have create a pre-releasae of openrpa, that now handles profile folders for you
Please give that a try to see if this makes things easiere for you ?
For better experience when using chrome/ff/edge in child sessions, nm.Openurl now has an userDataFolderMode option to control what profile folder to use.
automatic (default) = open url will use the default profile in a normal session and use the profile defined in profilepath. If profilepath is empty, it will create one in %appdata%\openrpa\childsession\browser
customfolder = open url will always use the folder defined in profilepath. If profilepath is empty, it will create a profile in %appdata%\openrpa\browser for main sessions and %appdata%\openrpa\childsession\browser for child sessins
DefaultFolder = open url will always use the default profile. This will make the browser throw an error if it is open in both the main and child session.
